How do you keep your berries fresh? I never really did anything, just tried to eat them in time, but often, I have to throw them out - this method is all over the internet, I had pinned it a while ago but forgot about it. Wednesday I was at Costco, they were selling a 908 gram package for less than $3 - that is a lot of berries for a really good price. While I was standing there trying to make up my mind, a lady asked me if I knew about the vinegar rinse, then, I remembered my pin. She said it really works and you can't taste the vinegar, I knew right then I was going to give it a try. The vinegar destroys bacteria and mold spores on the berries - you can do it with any kind of berry. The original pin came from thekitchn.com - I don't feel like I've been keeping up with my pinned from pinterest project, I have to get back on track!!
I bathed them just like it said - three parts water, one part vinegar - don't they look nice in the Pyrex hostess bowl?
A good rinse was next - the original pin called for a salad spinner but I don't have one of those so I just used the sprayer on the faucet.
